I would like others to feel the love and joy that I feel for Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I would like all to have an understanding for the purpose of this life and a hope for a glorious life after we leave our earthly existence.

I have a testimony of the restored gospel and love to serve in the church. I love to serve in the church and have held very responsible leadership positions throughout my life. I have been a Bishop for my local congregation and loved the opportunity to meet with members of my ward (congregation).
